LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – Legendary guitarist and songwriter Carlos Santana has announced he will hit the road with his band across North America this summer for the Supernatural Now tour.
The three-month, 29-date celebration will commemorate two of the most important milestones in the iconic guitarist’s career: the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking, multiple Grammy-winning album Supernatural, which spawned back-to-back No. 1 singles “Smooth” and “Maria Maria” and sold over 30 million copies worldwide, and the 50th anniversary of his momentous performance at Woodstock.
Produced by Live Nation, the Supernatural Now tour is scheduled to kick off June 22 at the Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ, and will make stops in Dallas, Chicago, Toronto, and more before concluding on August 25 at the Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY.
The Doobie Brothers, who have sold more than 48 million albums worlwide, will appear on all dates.
Reflecting on the significance of both anniversaries occurring in the same year, Santana recently said: “Both were monumental moments in my life. Woodstock and Supernatural took me to places I never dreamed were possible. I embraced those incredible moments in my life with all my heart. Both were supreme lessons in maintaining focus, heart and integrity in every step every day and to strive to better oneself with a high standard on and off the stage.”
For 2019, the Supernatural Now tour will focus on North America, however, Santana is reportedly looking to bring his dual-anniversary tour to Europe, Asia, South America, Australia and New Zealand next year.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning January 25 at LiveNation.com. Each pair of tickets purchased for the tour will be accompanied by Santana’s latest full-length album.
